Hello everyone! I am being of service to Mother Earth at the moment, but wanted to take time out to write a letter.
You see, I have been online during my off hours talking with black people of the ‘conscious’ variety. From black community leaders to black Judah Israelites(?), these people have pissed me off. I can’t have an intelligent dialogue with these people due to the fact that they want to tell me that I am not from America, I don’t know my ‘history’,white supremacy ruined black lives, and most of all…’they don’t want us to know…’
All of this upset and frustration trying to talk to my own people online logically to no avail made me ponder: What is the root issue here that these guys get mad at me if I tell them that 2+2=4? They would argue me down and tell me that the white man wants me to believe that 2+2=4 but it actually equals Africa.
Hi guys! I’m not an avid news watcher anymore, but today I saw online an article about the South Carolina massacre, and how that somehow equated to the Confederate flag being the culprit of the whole damn thing. I hope all of those who were murdered rest in peace and their families have comfort at this time. I pray justice shall be served in this matter.
I read several articles, but I am not sure if I am getting how the Confederate flag caused this massacre. I thought it was a crazy white person who was in a hateful state of mind, and found an opportunity to do a dirty deed, not a historical flag that has other meanings than hate and separation, which is why it has still been flying on the capitol building, and elsewhere.
I understand that the Confederate flags has racist connotations to some or most people, but to some people it’s a symbol of pride, for both black and white people. I had a Confederate flag sticker on my old Ford Explorer. I’m a Southern girl and a rebel, ya know?
Having had this news article to my attention, I decided to go on a little rant about heritage and the Confederate flag. Though this manner has all races involved, I found that this is a great time to share my perspective on the African American’s view towards the flag and how it has led to us placing the focus on the negative aspects of slavery and how it is has also led to the refusal to acknowledge our ancestors in a better light…which has led to generational blame on others for our trials and tribulations, further pushing the belief that we are still slaves.
I had to sit back for a couple of days in order to understand the outrage of the death/murder of a black man by the hands of a white man. All of these black people are upset, crying and looting…screaming racism.
What do they have to say about Chicago, Detroit and other cities that are in the news reporting massacres of black people by the hands of black people? Is that not considered a crime? Do we not care about the many grieving black mothers and families that have experienced loss via black on black crime? Continue reading
I dislike being in the same space for months and years at a time. I have to get away sometimes from my neighborhood, and see new faces and places.
In Texas, I dropped out of college and set up shop in my good friend’s bathroom (my loft) to write a screenplay. I learned nothing in college besides how to Google for answers to my questions. One answer that got me going was the steps to write a screenplay, so I asked my friend if it would be okay to pack up my stuff and head out to East Texas and write. He obliged. Continue reading
